One of Westerville City Schools Superintendent John Kellogg’s goals is to strengthen partnerships with the various government entities the district serves. Toward that end, he invited officials from Westerville and Genoa Township to tour parts of the school district, visiting classrooms, teachers and students, to see what is being done to improve the educational experience for families in the area. Genoa Township representatives toured the district on November 20, and Westerville officials followed on December 1, visiting elementary, middle, and high schools. Lunch followed at the Early Learning Center, where the guests had the opportunity to ask questions and get to know the staff.
